OUTSTANDING!!! posted 9/17/2011 (modified 9/17/2011)

The BEST decision we made!!! The event coordinators at the Renaissance Place are extremely helpful, experienced, professional, and take care of everything on your wedding day. We didn't have a worry in the world on our special day. We knew there were trustworthy, genuinely nice people there to make sure everything ran smoothly and everyone was happy. Every vendor we ended up going with was a recommendation from Mike at the Ren. The venue is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

beautiful venue posted 8/14/2011

I really liked working with the coordinators at the Renaissance Place. Scott was so nice and helpful throughout the whole process. He even has a meeting 2 to 3 weeks before your event with vendors to make sure everyone is on the same page. Additionally, the venue is gorgeous and everyone kept commenting about how beautiful the venue is, great for a wedding.

I felt like a princess! posted 8/5/2013

So happy I chose 1451 for my wedding venue! They treated me like a princess and made sure everything was PERFECT. It is a tiny bit pricey, but worth every single penny! You will not get the same service at different venues. The open bar was a DEAL. I only payed for what people drank. If 1/4 bottle of vodka was used, that is what a paid for! Can't get deals like that at other venues. The venue is also breath-taxingly BEAUTIFUL.

You must have your wedding here! posted 7/15/2013 (modified 7/15/2013)

Scott and Mike were so nice, such a big help, and very accommodating since day one. I did a lot of DIY for my wedding and they didn't seem annoyed by how much they had to set up for us. They also acted as our coordinators, saving us a ton of money trying to hire one. They kept everything on schedule. Another thing I liked about 1451 was that they let you choose your caterer (most Milwaukee places are run by Bartolotta and Zilis) and they had FREE parking.
All of our guests thought the place was so elegant as well! Highly recommended!

fabulous place! posted 8/7/2012

Scott and Mike handled everything beautifully for my wedding. They made planning easy, and answered all of my questions timely and were more than willing to help as needed. I recommend Renaissance Place to anyone looking to host a large event.

Breathtaking building! posted 12/16/2011

When I walked into Renaissance Place, I knew I had to have my wedding there! It is gorgeous, and Mike was such a pleasure to work with. Fortunately, the acoustics were also amazing! Sometimes that is a hit or miss with a building with tall ceilings. All of our guests loved the location, as did we!

1451 Renaissance posted 11/3/2011

Michael is fantastic. I felt like a princess at Renaissance Place, it is the most beautiful wedding venue! I loved that there was enough room for all the little kids to run around and play without knocking anyone over! The service is impeccable I can't speak highly enough about it. Michael was willing to set out my decorations the day of because they had an even the evening before and everything was perfectly placed. Love love love Renaissance Place!

We were so happy with our decision to have our reception at the Renaissance Place. Besides being an absolutely beautiful venue, we chose to go with the venue after we met with Mike and discovered that this venue was exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the whole planning process Mike truly made our wedding experience easy and enjoyable. It is really comforting when you have someone who truly understands planning for a wedding and we couldn't have been more happy with the vendors that he reccommended to us. He gave us great tips and made us aware of certain little things that aren't always obvious to see. We received so many compliments at our wedding and we owe a lot of thanks to Mike's recommendations for that. We would not hesitate to refer anyone to the Renaisance Place because it is a gorgeous venue and has great, experienced people that help make your wedding exactly what you imagined and more.

Scott at the Renaissance Place was a great gentleman to work with. From the first time we met, he was always willing and able to answer questions. On our wedding day, Scott and Mike made sure that everything and everyone was in the proper place. The building was beautiful, and we continuously were getting comments on the venue by our guests. I can definitely say that our day would not have been the same without the help of Scott and Mike. The only downside - several guests complained to me after the wedding because their drinks being taken away when they were still half full during the cocktail hour and reception - I cannot be sure if this was the Renaissance Place staff or the catering staff. Either way, I guess I shouldnt be suprised as this is there way of making more money (unfortunately).

A Great Experience! posted 11/12/2010 (modified 11/12/2010)

We had our wedding reception at 1451 Renaissance Place. The hall is beyond amazing! The high ceilings to the uplighting are more than we could have imagined for our reception. We could not believe how great everything looked when we walked in for the first time and saw everything decorated. It looked better than we ever could have imagined. We worked with Mike who is an amazing man and will go out of his way to make sure that your day goes as smoothly as possible. He is there to answer any questions you might have. After running into a major hiccup 1 month before our wedding day, Mike went completely out of his way for us. We had already booked a photo booth about a year in advance and found out 1 month before our wedding that the company was not going to follow through for us. After making phone calls to every photo booth company we could find a phone number for and none of them having any booths available, Mike contacted one for us. Needless to say, we had a photo booth at our reception! It was a huge hit! Thank you so much Mike! You truely are amazing!!!

Don't Go Anywhere Else! posted 11/7/2010

I can't imagine having my wedding anywhere else! Michael was sooo helpful and accomodating throughout the entire process. It was great that we could both bring in our own caterer (saving bucco bucks) and have both the ceremony and reception in the same place. We had so much fun and because of the style and decor of the building itself, we didn't have to spend money on many decorations or add-ons.

Wonderful posted 11/2/2010

They took care of EVERYTHING. Scott and Mike are fantastic and very organized. Someone was always available to answer questions and they are very patient. These are true professionals you can trust to make everything amazing. I pretty much had a day-of coordinator and venue wrapped in one!
